Each state has different laws. Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) try to file most of the adoptions they arrange in Indiana, so long as either the birth parents, adoptive parents, or child live in Indiana. Under Indiana law, neither the birth father’s nor birth mother’s parents – the child’s grandparents – have legal standing or grounds to object to an adoption. Additionally, in Indiana, grandparents have limited visitation rights which usually only come into play if the child’s parent is deceased. Also, those rights end with the adoption of the child by anyone other than a stepparent or a close family member, biologically related to the child, such as a grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, niece, or nephew. 

Whether you live in Indiana or any other state, if you have an untimely pregnancy, unplanned pregnancy, got pregnant by accident, or are just not ready for the lifetime commitment of parenthood and are thinking about putting your baby up for adoption — or, more correctly, making an adoption plan — and would like to explore adoption, contact us at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER:  Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans.  Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”.  If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.

Some would say that is like asking which is better—vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The question suggests that there are only two choices – vanilla or chocolate – local vs. national adoption agencies. As with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, there are other choices. When it comes to adoption, the other choice of an adoption facilitator is an adoption law firm, like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”). Some birth mothers and expectant mothers like the “touchy, feely” experience of working with a social worker or counselor at an adoption agency. Other birth parents prefer a “let’s just do this” approach.

While we, at Kirsh & Kirsh, listen to expectant mothers and strongly believe in counseling, we tend to be more direct in our approach to arranging adoptions. Our way of doing things is not for everybody but based upon over 500 Five Star Google Reviews and our Better Business Bureau A+ Rating, many people, including birth parents, like how we do things.

We cannot make adoption an easy choice, but we can make it less scary by removing some of the unknowns. Ultimately, a birth parent will have to decide if adoption is in their own best interests and the best interests of their child. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, will not and cannot make that decision for anyone, but we can provide information and answers to questions – that way, you can make a well-informed decision.

Most importantly, remember that she is the mother of the child and has the right to make parenting decisions. It is okay to offer guidance and advice, but you should not impose your judgment on her.

A good, non-judgmental way to begin a conversation about adoption with a pregnant friend is to ask her: “How do you feel about being pregnant?” If she expresses anything but excitement, she has then opened the door for you to suggest other options such as putting the child up for adoption or, more correctly, making an adoption plan for the child.

If she is excited about welcoming a child or another child, you might ask questions that cause her to judge for herself her readiness for a newborn. Ultimately, she will need to decide for herself that parenting the child may not serve the child’s best interests. Most people more willingly accept decisions they make on their own as opposed to those forced upon them by others. You could ask, questions like:

  1. At the end of the day, how much energy does she have now without the responsibility of a newborn?
  2. Does she feel that she spends enough one-on-one time with her child or children if she has another child or children?
  3. Who babysits her child or children and will look after the new baby when she goes out or to work and is that person willing to take responsibility for another child, particularly, a newborn?
  4. How likely is it that the father of the baby will help her raise the child?
  5. How much money does she have at the end of the month that she could use to provide for the new baby?
  6. What part of the cost of raising the child does she expect to receive from others and how certain is she of their continued and ongoing commitment?
